People dancing in the street
Nothing gets me more in a holiday mood than a good old cumbia bouncing off those speakers, tíos and tías dancing around, and random primos parked on chairs deep asleep. If you’re like us, as soon as December first comes around, you’re turning those cumbias up. So, we’ve gathered our favorite cumbias that can’t be missed during the holiday fiesta season.

We’re Aniceto stans around here, so be sure to find some, and hey, for all those Salvi gals, we can’t forget Los Hermanos Flores.

We couldn’t stop dancing while making this list, and we’re sure y’all couldn’t either. We could easily fill this with Aniceto Molina and La Sonora Dinamita, but tell us what other cumbias can’t be missed during these holidays. Let us know on our Twitter @luzcollective

I grew up being told, “you can’t do that because you’re a girl” or “your brother can because he’s a boy” and I hated hearing that. It’s been something that has tormented me my entire life.
